    Thanks!
    So no joke, that was last week against another opponent.  My Ackbar, 6 x TRC90s, and 2 x GR75s with Slicer Tools list vs. his Triple Cymoons.  Needless to say, that player absolutely hates Slicer Tools now (“Just keep switching those dials to squadron, please”).

    @mazz0 Maybe you'll find your answers at Star Wars Armada wiki?
    It's more complete, better interlinked and easier to handle than the RRG.

    All aces with a scatter token have 3 or 4 hull. The only exception is IG-88 (and twin), but he only got 1 scatter token, no brace.
    I think there is a reason why Vader didn't come with Scatter and Brace and 5 hull.

    I understood @ShoutingMan like he wished a pack with new ship cards and tokens for already existing ships (wave 1-2). And we more or less got that for the ISD, which is a wave 2 ship, in the Chimaera expansion. And it seemed to me, that you, @IronNerd, felt that to be unlikely.
    But if we already got new ship cards and tokens for the ISD and we will get new titles in RitR, I could imagine that it wouldn't be a too far step to release "upgrading expansions" for the Nebulon or the Victory SD. And I think that could also be a good business move for FFG.
    I -- for example -- never bought a third VSD. The moment we would get a sort of Chimaera expansion with a miniature*... I would probably buy that. I would prefer to get upgrade expansions without miniatures with 1 ship token and the according new ship cards, so I could buy just the amount I need/want. I think these would sell quite well and maybe would help to sell miniatures as well!

    * If that miniature would be with open hatches at the side, that would be really a must-buy!

    That's more than oversimplifying. If you compare products, than you shouldn't look at the price only but on the margin of profit a company can make by selling. A cheaper product can be more interesting, it it causes less costs. To produce a SW:A ship or squadron expansion needs plenty of time for developing and producing the miniatures. A box with ship cards (and ship tokens) only could be developed faster and easier. It also could be a good marketing strategy to hold up (or revive) interest in already developed products or the game as such.
    When you say that's your experience after nearly 20 years of miniatures gaming, then you forget about: The Corellian Conflict, which brought no minis, but new cards for squadrons and new objectives to the game (along with the rules and tokens for the campaign). Same with the next campaign box. There will be even new upgrades like ship titles.
    They did an "upgrade" for ISDs with the Chimaera expansion. There they did't need to develop a new miniature (only for the Mandalorian Gauntlet).
    When we look at Legion we even see a "Card Pack" coming. So expansions without minis but additional rules and/or cards for a game are not as uncommon as one may think. And I would say that even FFG seems to know.

    Triangular reacted to LostFleet in Great Video of ILMers about creating Star Wars and Rogue One   
    Last thursday Academy hosted a panel with legendary ILMers about making the original, Star Wars movies and recent Rogue One. It is a two hour long video but each speaker talks for ten minutes so you dont have to watch it at one go. Academy youtube site just showed this video for 48 hours and put it off line, another youtube site just uploaded so I dont know how long it will stay on line, if you are interested I highly recommend you to watch it or download it now so you can watch it later.
    Especially during making of Rogue One, there are new VR technology introduced which allows director in real time to compose his shots. If augmented reality can be applied to this technology maybe in the future we can play Armada with both real miniatures and virtual squadrons and starfields in the background and etc. Anyway, I hope you enjoy the video
    Official Description :
    Over the last 40 years, technology has advanced by leaps and bounds. But the impetus to create and inspire remains the same. This event contrasted the analog technologies developed for the first STAR WARS released in 1977 with the all-digital toolsets used to create ROGUE ONE released in 2016.

    Key contributors from both STAR WARS and ROGUE ONE shared the journey of creating the impossible with their breakthrough visual effects. Our list of stellar participants included: John Dykstra, Dennis Muren, John Knoll, Ben Burtt, Marcia Lucas, Bill George, Harrison Ellenshaw, Bruce Nicholson, Richard Edlund and Rachel Rose. Hosted by Kiri Hart, co-producer of ROGUE ONE.

    Triangular reacted to Karneck in New Judge for North American Championship (GenCon)   
    Greetings everyone!
    I'm Derek (aka Karneck), most of you know me as the guy who posts the youtube videos talking about explaining stuff Star Wars Armada related.

    With the departure of our beloved (and all around great guy) @i2xCross from the judges chair, I was recently approached by FFG and asked if I would be willing to judge the North American Championship at GenCon this year.
    I am (and still) totally blown away by this opportunity and I have accepted.
    I am extremely excited to be attending my first GenCon in August and I look forward to meeting more people from this wonderful community! I had a blast meeting so many people at Worlds.

    I know we're eagerly awaiting the release of the new announced expansions and looking forward to more information on the upcoming product. I can't answer any questions about that but if you DO have any questions regarding Star Wars Armada, and on how I would make any rulings, if the new expansions were to be released by GenCon.
    Please feel free to ask here, or if you have any questions really, I'll do the best I can to provide the most accurate information I can.

    I'm quite sure there is some italian player interested. Not sure if they read here. Fact is that we can use german copies too, as soon as we have at least one italian copy of the upgrade.

    I wouldn't recommend getting a second core set. If you really want the extra ships then buy them in the separate expansion packs because they come with different upgrades. The second core set would give you a bunch of redundant upgrades, objectives and damage deck you wouldn't use.
